Wednesday, March 14, 2018 - Gunter Hill Campground, Montgomery, AL, Day 4 - 0 Miles, 6,359.1 Towing Miles For the Trip

Not a bad morning, although I woke up with a headache. A couple of Tylenol, and my morning walk helped. I took the camera to start the usual rally webpage, but it is cold enough that most of the early photos are of trailers, not people. I did a couple more loops during the day, and as it warmed up, more people crawled out of their trailers. Lots more (about 40) photos at the first day page of the Green Eggs & Ham Rally.

The "Warm" Bathrooms & Laundry The "Cold" Bathrooms Registration Smile!

I did a couple of loads of laundry at the large bathroom building. There are two washers & two dryers, but when I got there the first machine was half full of water & stuck in the fill cycle with no water flowing & pushing the different buttons didn't do anything. We had a power outage yesterday, and I thing that killed the cycles on the machine. I tried unplugging it, and the fill light went out, but it didn't start back into normal operation. Since it was only a buck to wash ($.75 in the second machine), I put some quarters in the slots and it ran through the cycles. By the time it finished, I had already done my second load in the other machine, but at least it worked for the next person. The washing machine I used didn't have all that active a spin dry, and it took two runs of the dryers to get the clothes dry. So, the laundry is done. I skipped a shower, but may give it a shot tomorrow.

Another loop of the campground for more photos, and back to the trailer. I tilted one of the solar panels. I don't need them since the site has full hookups, but a couple of people have asked how I did it, so it is easier to show than just tell. I also left the double fold ladder out so visitors can see it as well. The official trailer tours for our loop are Friday, but I've already shown the trailer a couple of times.

By then it was dinner time, which was a microwaved Devour Chicken Enchiladas dinner. I've never had the brand before, and found it OK. Not wonderful, but good for a 5 minute meal. I also cracked my last bottle of Kendall-Jackson Pinot Noir. I can still buy it here in Alabama, but at $27.00 per bottle (it was around $12.00 in Arizona), I may have to pass. Some day I'd like to try a $100.00 bottle of wine just to see if I can tell the difference, but paying twice the price for the same wine rubs me the wrong way!

Until Tomorrow -
